    ICV

    Can someone please point me in the direction of the idle control valve, the cars doing me head in cus it keeps cutting out from under revving, i've really gotta give it a clean, cus if it aint that its probably the throttle body....

    A pic would be really helpful due to the fact that i'm not really mechanically minded and if you tell me its next to the thingybob, under the wotsit, i will be none the wiser.....

    Much appreciated....

    Not that it really helps but I had this problem so I took it to a local garage that I trust from previous experience. They charged me £30 to code read the ECU (Turned out it was idling too low), remove, strip, clean and re-setup the TB and ICV (Apparently carbon build up is a common problem with these) Problem sorted and she now runs like a dream

    I was going to do a How To for this, but kinda forgot ops: :roll: U know the pipe which goes from the back of the airbox to the back of the engine? Unscrew the large jubilee clip which holds that tight, lift the pipe up & hey presto, there be ur throttle body, just clean it with sum Carb Cleaner
